Delta: Only 13 People Used NRA Discount

IMG_4579 (1)Delta Air Lines said Friday that the total number of people who had taken advantage of the discount to National Rifle Association members it recently discontinued was 13.

The Atlanta-based airline dropped the NRA from its discount program last week in the wake of the Florida school shooting. The move prompted a major outcry from gun owners and Georgia lawmakers, where Delta is based, and the Georgia legislature moved to strip the airline of a multi-million dollar jet fuel tax break in retaliation.

Delta was one of a growing list of companies that severed ties with the group last week and later said it would review discount policies for all organizations to maintain its neutrality.

“We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature,” said the airline’s CEO, Ed Bastian, in a message to employees.
